    I was like that too, but you can do it. I failed every class assessment/mock test (D>) and still managed to secure a B. If I can you definitely can.

    Send me any essays you want me to look over.

    It's also worth noting I only got a B because I didn't revise absolutely every single essay and ended up skipping a 4 marker and an entire Relationships question so the answers that I had given were pretty good.

    ahh nah it's fine, i'll be checking over my essays soon to make sure they're good. How do you structure your evaluation though? that's the part i'm struggling with the most. I got a B in my mock but I ran out of time on the last question so i couldn't complete it, my teacher said that if I completed it I could have gotten an A, so I also need to work on timing.

    woo just seen this, why havn't your school got you another teacher? Are you teaching yourself? simple psychology is a good website, has helped me loads, its practically structured how to write essays and it also makes points quite clear
    No unfortunatley they have just got a substitute who's giving us sheets of paper with information on not relevant to our exams, yeah i'm using the loopa books but struggling to do it by myself without a teacher to support my learning or even to mark home work

    Exogenous zeitgebers yes, my mock was on endogenous, but the others it's more unlikely.

    Hey guys, I'm currently rewriting an essay -I got full marks in A01 but my A02 needs a lot of work!! the essay is on genes and hormones on gender development and was wondering if this structure and content is enough? What studies would you guys include? Heres what I plan to talk about for the AO2. Are these studies good to talk about? My teacher usually says do 2 support and 1 against.. Thanks for any advice/feedback in advance :-)

    -Money supports the role of biological factors in gender development as Reimer reverted to a boy -talk about how its a case study unreliable, cant generalise 2 wider population
    -
    Gechwind et al suggests that hormones affect sex differences. Male brains are prenatally exposed to testosterone, more masculine gender development... This may explain y reimer felt he was a boy

    However there is not always a link between genetic sex and the same gender development e.g. CAH patients have intersexed conditions- genitalia doesn't match sex
    Against this tho- Imperato-McGinley studied intersexed conditions in the batistaa family and they changed to a boy

    Finally talk about the nature vs nurture debate...

    Oh yeah doing essay plans is a good idea. I like to test myself on each essay plan y asking someone to test me. Recording yourself reading out essays is actually such a good idea! I didn't think about that! Anything else you (or anyone else) does to revise psychology??

    Especially to learn the huge amount of content

    Best way to memorize any essay on A2 psychology is to use the acronym method. This made it much easier for me when I also used this technique earlier for my AS exams as well. I also used Saj's Loopa books which are the best resources for structuring your own essays. Each essay must be at least 800 but at most 900 words in order to guarantee yourself a decent grade. Remember when structuring your essays aim for the full 8 A01 marks and 12 A02 marks. 16 A02 marks is not required and will waste your time as you only have 30 minutes for each section. e.g. - i did perception, aggression and gender for unit 3. If planning for a perception essay such as Gregory's indirect theory. Use the acronym Gregory and do 7 paragraphs of 900 words. The first letter of your paragraph should be G and the second R and so on... The reason for 7 is because Gregory has 7 letters and using this technique to memorize your essays will make it much easier to remember when doing the exams. Plus on the day of the exam you would not panic or feel stressed. If you use this technique and structure your essays now then on the day of the exam you simply just go over it and smash it. This will benefit you in two ways. If you were an AS student and you used this technique then it will be easier for you when doing A2. But if your'e an A2 student then it will also benefit you as memorization and the acronym method will become a habit for you. The sooner you use it, the sooner you will smash it and it also may be helpful towards your degree in the future which is the stage I am at now. Plus just to make you guys remember, from the 12 A02 marks include 10 A02 marks and atleast two A03 marks which is issues, debates and approaches. You have to include A03 to get a good grade for an essay. So 8 A01, and 12 A02 (10 A02 and 2 A03) should do the trick. This is a technique which you guys do not have to follow. This is the technique i used which made me successful. Now hopefully, 2016 will be the year where the same thing will happen for you guys.

    For those of you who are doing PSYA4 Anomalistic psychology:

    Does anyone else think that magical thinking and/or psychic mediumship as an essay question is likely to come up?
